Gauteng ANC‚ SACP‚ Cosatu to stage protest march against Walus’s release

Cosatu in CrisisThe tripartite alliance partners in Gauteng – the ANC‚ South African Communist Party and the trade union federation Cosatu – are to stage a protest march in Tshwane on Friday against the release on parole of Chris Hani’s killer‚ Janusz Waluś.

The march will start from the main entrance of the Correctional Services Centre at 10 AM and proceed to Church Square, where a rally will be held.

“Alliance partners will protest against Janusz Waluś’s release on parole following the court decision made on 10 March 2016‚” the alliance partners said in a statement. “Janusz Waluś murdered in cold blood SACP General Secretary and ANC NEC member‚ Comrade Chris Hani on 10 April 1993.

“The march and rally also seek to support the decision of the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services Michael Masutha to appeal against the court order.

“The action will also serve to protest against the extremely controversial‚ unfortunate‚ insensitive‚ inconsiderate and regrettable remarks made by the Judge Nicoline Janse van Nieuwenhuizen calling on the Hani family to forgive‚ forget and simply move on with their lives.

“The Judge completely ignored the fact that the Hani family and the rest of the population still have many unanswered questions about the full details relating to the murder of comrade Chris Hani‚” the statement added.
